"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

PREPARE POTATOES
My homemade mashed potato recipe is perfect for this recipe, you’ll make a half batch to end up with 3 cups. While the potatoes boil, prepare the filling.


PREPARE FILLING
Preheat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the diced onions and celery. Saute for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Increase heat to high. Add the ground beef. Cook and crumbled until cooked through. Drain all excess grease.
Reduce heat to medium-high. Sprinkle in the flour and toss to coat. Add the Tomato Paste and thyme. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
Deglaze the pan with the Chicken broth. Use a silicone spatula to scrape up any brown bits from the pan, this adds flavor to the filling.
Add HALF of the brown gravy. Stir in the vegetables until heated through.
Season with salt/pepper and add more gravy if desired. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Remove from heat.

ASSEMBLE
Transfer to a lightly greased 9-inch pie pan or 7 x 11 casserole dish. Carefully spread warm mashed potatoes on top.
Use a fork to “rake” lines into the mashed potatoes.


BROIL
Set the oven rack about 5 inches away from the broiler. Set to a high broil, 550 degrees.
Broil for about 5 minutes watch it after 2 minutes, it will go from perfectly browned to burned quickly.
Remove from heat and serve.
